The Skate Park

The Skate Park, is a youth hub, a forest island, and a safe environment to bring families, friends and children together.

Have you heard what is happening at the new Skate Park in Dehashakti?
First of all let me give you directions on how to get there:
If you are driving from the Youth Center towards Fertile, pass Minati and a few hundred meters on your right you will see the Dehashakti sign. Enter and take the very first sharp right. You will be in a skate park in the middle of the forest.

I spoke to Edgar, one of the founders of the Skate Park, and he described a bit of the history and the movement behind it.
Let's give kudos to the Auroville youth that managed to procure funding to initiate this park; transport the metal ramp originally in Aurovelo to the Skate Park to centralize the activities and improve the layout , so now they have two ramps in the court. With surplus money they even added a staircase to the ramp and built a tree house.
Another cool aspect of this project is that the Skate Park is part of a plan of conservation of the green corridor, which includes the wild life in the area and the forest. The green corridor links to the city center by cycle and foot paths.
The Skate Park as it is now functions already as a youth hub, but also it attracts families – sometimes with very small children. With the addition of a playground and toilets, the park would be ideal.
So far there are quite a few new skaters attending classes twice weekly, and about 20 regular skaters; and there is a yearly event that includes a light- hearted competition, so look out for the announcement of their next event.
